It won't be hard to find mouth-watering dishes in this winter wonderland. Among the many desserts, try chocolate Panforte, Necci and Lamporecchio cookies. And if you're craving a savory treat, then try some cured meats like finocchiona, pork and 'cinta Senese' salami. For a real tour of local flavors, check out the 'Taste Tour of the Apennines.' Finally, don't forget to try the restaurants involved in the Vetrina Toscana project in the province of Pistoia.
For those seeking a culture and art-based break from the slopes, the monumental art cities of Pistoia, Florence, Lucca and Pisa are just a few kilometers away.
